Progressive WTF



  • from an email that I got from my insurance company today: 

     

    <FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2><FONT size=3>#FirstName#,</FONT>

    </FONT><FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2><FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2><FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>deer</FONT></FONT>Oh deer.

    We know. Bad pun.

    But it's deer season again in your area, and we want to help you avoid any scary "Oh dear" moments.

    Of course, if you do find yourself in a deer-related accident, we'll cover any damage to your vehicle under your comprehensive coverage. (As a side note, you can check your current coverages anytime by logging in to your policy or calling us at 1-800-XXX-XXXX.)

    Our first priority, though, is your safety (and, of course, we want deer to be safe, too). So, as you take to the road this fall, keep in mind the following:
    </FONT>
    []
    Bullet <FONT face="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif" size=2>If you see a deer, be prepared for additional deer to follow. </FONT>

  •  Infinite deers?



  • Nah, there's just a big ring of deer running all the way around the world. There are some gaps and it moves around every so often, so it took a while for people to notice.

    Guess where those gaps come from...



  • I, for one, welcome our cervidae overlords.

    Bathroom breaks, of course.

    Cervidae is no family of mine!



  • I've had this conversation several times in the car when my wife was driving:

    Me: Deer.

    Her: Yes, dear?

    Me: No, DEER!

    Her: <slams on brakes>

    missing deer?

    Where's the image? I want deer pix!



  • funny, sometimes you get the responses you expect and sometimes you don't.  No one has commented on what I found to be the WTF and the reason I posted it.  Namely, that my first name isn't #FirstName#

    Gosh, really? I hadn't noticed. #FirstName# is such a common name around here, and of course I regularly order pizza from a place whose number is XXX-XXXX, so that's perfectly normal, too. </mild_sarcasm>

     It's not that that isn't a valid WTF, it's that it's become so... cliché. Mental self-pollution regarding the actual contents is much more amusing.

    I had a similar issue last week when my wife walked into a ten-foot wall of honey.

    I actually thought that was just your anonymizing the letter.

    And that's probably trwtf.

    Your wife must be a miracle of a woman. No way any woman I know would react just after ONE SINGLE repeating!

     

     



  •  i don't know in US, but in belgium, if you hit a deer with your car, you can additionnaly get a fee for killing a deer without a hunting licence :D

    Me, too, only mine got mauled by a female dog.

    Wouldn't that be...  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/999-9999 



  • AFAIK here in Holland you get to take the meat home for free if hit a deer (and thereby killing it, I assume). Or you sell it to a butcher...

    I was thinking that.

    Me: Deer

    Her: ...

    Me: DEER!

    Her: WHAT!?!

    Me: NO, FOR FUCKS SAKE, DEER!!! THERE!!!

    Her: I Know, do you think I'm blind?

    Me: Well you didn't slow down.

    Her: I saw it half an hour before you.

    Me: Don't .....

    Her: Are you saying I can't drive?

    Me: No, I ....

    Her: Don't tell me how to drive!

    Me: I'm not, I ....

    Her: Do you want to drive?  Huh?

    etc.
